Artworks by Amber Pfeifer

Student  |  GWCC

I view the world and try to interpret what I see through images, shapes, swishes, and doodles. I recognize patterns of light and dark, and the many grays in between. Drawing from life, while challenging, can be its own reward. While the result of the drawing is not perfect it can never be what I see; the result was never the intent. Sometimes it’s just the simple act of sitting down and seeing what I can come up with today. I can’t think of a better pursuit than the simple act of creating something new; even if it was inspired by something old: momento mori.

Artworks by Elizabeth Overall 

Student  |  GWCC

Architecture, spiritual iconography, and history are the focus of my work on a current collaborative project titled Alternative Visions of Prague. The two images submitted for this exhibit are from that body of work. Created using the cyanotype process, Prussian blue was the perfect choice to express my vision of Prague evoking a sense of spirituality, melancholy, and peaceful beauty, I can think of no other way to share my experience of this beautiful city.

Antoinette Cauley

Artworks by Antoinette Cauley

Artist  |  Antoinette Cauley

Being a Phoenix native, Antoinette Cauley's work is very reflective of her city- the gritty and the beautiful. Her work is heavily influenced by rap music and hip hop culture with a focus on social issues and her own internal conflicts. She combines the grittiness of rap music with the beauty of vibrant color and a personal, emotionally driven message.

Cauley has spent the past several  years working as a full time artist in her studio in Phoenix, Arizona. She attended Mesa Community College where she studied Fine Art with an emphasis in painting. During this time she held a two year apprenticeship with nationally renowned oil painter Chris Saper. During her spare time, Cauley works with youth ages 5-18, teaching art classes that focus on drawing, painting and color theory.
